I'd really like to have the M1A that I ordered several months ago. An M60 would also be cool, as would an M249. I wouldn't mind having a CheyTac, an Accuracy International and a Barret either.

SF Bay Area for now. That being said the original question didn't require that the firearm in question be legal in my jurisdiction. :) I'd have to move to Nevada to actually own a Title II firearm.
If you were to run a Smith or Fulton receiver, you could build the rest of the gun with NOS TRW parts. The semi-auto receiver would carry a clean Cali serial number. If you watch Gun Broker, you'll find quite a few TRW parts for sale. After assembling most of the action, you could send the rifle into Krieger and have them hand fit a barrel.

I've actually considered going this route, as it wouldn't cost too much more than an off the shelf M1A, and in the end, you'd have a more accurate gun.

I already have TRW bolts, an oprod and trigger group. I plan to order a forged LRB receiver at some point but they've been backed ordered for some time. I'll have it assembled onto a McMillian stock that's gathering dust in the closet as well. I do want a hand fitted barrel and I'd like it with a shorter throat and less sloppy neck than I've measured on every factory .308 rifle I've checked.
